Well, looks like I was right that especially the southeast and mid atlantic wouldbe havinga cold and snowy winter after all this winter. They’re saying from new york to like georgia will have it bad this year. They have cold and snowy covering right over virginia beach area this year! I heard their forecast is probably the best ever for snowlovers here, as virginia and the rest of the southeast aswe’re part of the southeast to them have predicted blizzards this winter coming up for us this winter! looks like virginia’s going to be a main highlight for many treacherous, cold and snowy days ahead for us and can’t wait. I’m checking that almanac out, because they seem very concerned for our area!

- Snowfall will be above normal in most locations from New England southward to Georgia and westward across the northern tier of states to the Cascades of Washington and Oregon. Skiers, rejoice!

- Temperatures across most of the nation will be above normal, on average, with several very cold periods.
- However, temperatures will be below normal, on average, in most of New England, the Mid-Atlantic, South Florida, the Upper Midwest, the Desert Southwest, and the Pacific Southwest.

- Most of the area from Texas and western Louisiana northward to Nebraska and Iowa will have relatively mild temperatures, on average, but below-normal precipitation will increase drought concerns.
